Cranberry Isles is a town in Hancock County, incorporated on March 16, 1930 from a portion of the town of Mount Desert. In 1849 it annexed additional land from that town to complete its current area.
The 200 acre cranberry marsh on Great Cranberry Island influenced Governor Bernard in 1762 to name the town, which is composed of this and four additional islands: Islesford, Baker, Bear, and Sutton. Sutton was purchased by Ebenezer Sutton in 1755.
The town lies at the entrance to Somes Sound, the fjord that splits Mount Desert Island.
